Caesar Salad with Dressing


Why is it they charge so much for a Caesar Salad when they are this easy to make! I made my Caesar Salad Dressing without the anchovies because my husband doesn’t like them but I’m telling you, don’t leave them out! Even if you don’t like them, they add that certain flavor that is what makes a Caesar Salad a Caesar Salad!

  1. I’ve got to try this, looks great!

    About the anchovies..I just read in “Bon Appetit” magazine, “there are two kinds of people: those who love anchovies and those who don’t (but really should).

    I’ve always thought them to be not that appetizing, but am coming around and can see the value of a tiny addition of them after reading that article and this recipe!
